Academies of Central Arkansas

A historic partnership between the four public school districts and the five chambers in Pulaski County has formed around a new model for public high school. Ford Next Generation Learning (Ford NGL) mobilizes educators, local employers and community leaders to transform teaching and learning in high schools by creating and maintaining career-themed academies.

Academies of Central Arkansas will prepare students for college, careers, lifelong learning and leadership so they can compete successfully in the modern economy. Teachers in career academies work collaboratively, intertwining the academy’s career lens across core academics to deliver relevant learning with real-world experiences provided by local industry.
